Backup jobs not superseding and loss of catalogs (BE2012)
Some help really appreciated here.
We have switched to using backup exec 2012 now for about three months.
I have multiple jobs setup all based on the same template. They are scheduled in as daily which alternates between two tapes as a differential which is superseded by the weekly, which is superseded by the monthly, then the annual.
This works fine 9 servers which work exactly as expected however there is one server that states the job is complete, however I have only just noticed that the weekly, monthly and annuals never supersede the dailies, hence I never get a full backup, glad I noticed this relatively early! The times are all identical and the backup calendar states that the daily will be superseded on the Friday by the weekly however it just doesn't. The previous backups show a daily differential on Friday even though future occurrences show that the weekly will supersede it.
Also, I have noticed in all my other jobs that the catalogues are going missing even though the tapes have not been overwritten and there are no settings to purge catalog data in BE2012 options (i.e. the setting is set to never purge).
Any help much appreciated, this is worrying.
